Queen of Scotland (1542-1567). The Catholic monarch during the bitter Scottish Reformation, she was forced to abdicate in favor of her son, the future James I of England. After fleeing to England (1568), she was imprisoned by Elizabeth I. Catholic supporters plotted to place her on the English throne, resulting in her trial and execution for sedition.
